Last night I watched Tuesday night's series finale of "Veronica Mars" and the season finale of "Lost."
"Veronica Mars" just made me sad. It was clearly meant as a season finale, but then the show got cancelled, so that meant that none of the loose ends will ever be tied up. Sigh.
"Lost" was freakin' awesome. I actually felt as though I understood things better once I'd worked them through my subconscious as I slept. How many shows engage your imagination to that extent, I ask you?
So apparently the island is at the locus of numerous parallel universes. Once you're there, it's highly unlikely that you'd be able to go back to your own universe (and Jack's flash-forwards suggest a scenario in which they did get "rescued," only to end up in the wrong reality), which is why Ben is so adamant that everyone stay put. I assume that Jacob is caught somewhere between universes and I have an inkling that more than one universe's Richard is in play.
Do I understand any of what I've just said? Not so much, although I have decades of science fiction reading under my belt to help me grasp the basic ideas. There's still a lot to figure out, but there are several more seasons left for that. My show-meter was tipping toward "Heroes" for most of the season, but I think "Lost" is back at the top again now. If you're a "Lost" watcher, what did you think?

Cat update: Xena's antibiotics seem to be working. She's been hanging out with us (she likes to pretend to suckle on my fluffy robe, which is cute and sad at the same time), and I think she's about a day or two away from giving in and playing with Velvet.
This is my last workday of the week and I'm going in early to make sure I get everything finished before I leave. Have a lovely Thursday!
